History in 1S

Today we had a fantastic discussion in our history lesson. First we looked at the artefacts and discussed what they might mean and how they could link. We thought it meant travelling around the world in an aeroplane. Then we looked further at the Amelia Earhart book and learnt that she was the first woman […]

6H Artwork

Here are some of our completed barbed wire artwork images. Everyone has produced an excellent final sketch and have worked hard on their shading skills. There is some great detail in some of the hands and finger images.

5P Solar System Science

5P have had a fantastic couple of weeks with their learning linked to space. Last week they researched an area of space with a partner and then contributed to a document together. This week they then went in front the camera and presented their learning on the green screen.

Y2WB have been super scientists this week ⛵️

This week we decided that our science investigation would answer the question: ‘Does size matter to make a strong boat?’ We thought about the materials we could use and how we could investigate our question. We agreed that paper and paperclips could make a boat and we could test the strength using marbles. To make […]

Foundation Two ‘A Huge Bag of Worries’

Children in Foundation Two have enjoyed reading the P4C text ‘A huge bag of worries’ by Virginia Ironside.

6H Barbed Wire Art

Taking inspiration from World War 1 battlefields, we used sketching skills to produce images of barbed wire. We will add images to these in future art lessons. The children experimented with tone and shading really well.

6H Reading Area

During guided reading 6H can sit in our reading corner and pretend they are reading in the trenches of WW1. They have learned quickly that it was not comfortable! Keep an eye out for new objects which will be added.  

Sharing real history using family experience

Alexis showed us a part of her family history today. She talked about her great grandads Soldiers Release book and Soldiers handbook. They were so delicate to handle, the children thought it was amazing that the soldiers handbook had been carried around in WW2 and had survived. 

Welcome to the army. Recruitment speeches in 6B

Welcome to the army. Recruitment speeches in 6B Today we have started a new genre of writing, persuasive speeches. In WW1 young men were persuaded to join the army by recruitment officers. In our first session we looked at our model text and thought about how we could command an audience using our voices and […]

Science experiment

Today we started our science experiment to see which boat was the best to travel around the world in. We tested two different boats, a paper boat and a fabric boat. We all predicted we thought that the fabric boat would hold the most weight but we were wrong. It was in fact the paper […]
